After the closing of the famous MegaUpload, the well-known Kim Schmitz, more popular by the nickname Kim dotcom, decided to go ahead with a cloud data transfer and storage system and created what we know today as Mega. A free portal that allows you to store information and download it to any computer on the planet.
Along with this portal, Kim also launched Megasync, an application that you can download both on your computer and on other devices to synchronize your data stores with your Mega account and make transfers easily. A good way to have backup copies of important information and have direct access to everything without complications. The usefulness of this binomial has led many users to wonder not only how to have a Mega account, but also how to create a free Megasync account.
Both go hand in hand, and their functionalities are something impossible to ignore, much less in these times. Therefore, we are going to explain what you have to do to take advantage of this creation that has taken over from the already extinct Megaupload to improve it completely and make things as easy as possible for us when downloading files and documents from the internet.

With this simple guide that we leave below, you will know not only how create an account and use Megasync, you will also have the opportunity to know all the Premium plans offered by Mega, its rates, its services and how to choose the one you want to have. Although optional, they are a very good complement to the general offer proposed by this upload and download storage mechanism in the cloud.
To talk about register a new account in Mega step by step, we are going to focus on the PC version, more specifically on the Windows. The most common environment to access it is with this combination and, although it can also be done from iOS or Android, the similarities of the procedure with respect to these systems are many, allowing to follow almost the same steps.
If you want to register a new Mega account, you must follow the following steps:
1 – Enter the Mega website
With your PC, open your web browser usual (or whatever you have installed) and type the URL of the Mega web portal in the address bar at the top: https://mega.nz. Another option is to write “Mega.nz”In Google and access the result that leads to this page.
2 – Start with account creation

3 – Fill in your data
Inside the free account creation menu, you will find a short form. It does not ask for a lot of information, although it is important that it be filled in properly. You must enter both your name and surname and, in addition, an email account that will be linked and a password to type twice to confirm its accuracy.
It is very important that do not reveal the password to anyone and that, of course, the e-mail entered is real and you can access it. It should also be noted that if you do not accept Mega’s terms of service, you will not be able to create your account.

Go to your e-mail, open the mail that you just received (if you are in Gmail remember that it can be in the “Notifications“) Y click on the “Verify my email” button. Another point to keep in mind is that sometimes, this type of verification emails end up in the spam tray, so don’t stop checking it, maybe it’s there.
